Could taking tylenol (acetaminophen) or tylenol (acetaminophen) 3 cause a 96.62 non african GFR reading?
It normal, and no: Many pathologists, nephrologists, and other physicians are strongly critical of the fad for "estimating glomerular filtration rate" from a spot creatinine.

Acetaminophen can be liver toxic and is usually avoided in this situation, but is far less dangerous for him than a daily fifth of vodka. Discuss with his doctor. ...Read more

If it is, it needs to be worked up by your primary care doctor or a G.I. doctor. Good luck. ...Read more
